Newcastle United today signed Isaac Hayden from Arsenal.

The defender – who has penned a five-year deal at St James's Park – became the club's fifth summer signing.

Versatile Hayden has experience of the Championship from a year-long loan at Hull City last season, where he was used in defence and midfield.

And the 21-year-old has explained why he was so keen to join relegated Newcastle.

United hope to follow the capture of Hayden with that of a specialist central defender following the summer departures of Fabricio Coloccini and Steven Taylor.

But the manager of one target is determined that the club does NOT get their man.

Meanwhile, Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko was the talk of Twitter last night.
